My little crafting world....

Hi all

I teach mixed media, decorative painting, card making and papercrafts, jewellery making and creative embroidery classes.

So I decided to try and enter a few challanges. The biggest challenge is on how to go about it as I'm such a non-gadget girl and trying to upload things is a nightmare (hence the lack of pics on my blog-note to self, GET HELP!!). These are for the Tim Holtz Tattered Floral Challange Anyway here goes... and tutorial below.

It worked!!!

I love these and they are so simple to make:
  • Die cut white shrink plastic with the Tim Holtz Tattered Floral die 1 x largest, 2 times medium and 3x smaller flower)
  • Punch holes in the larger floweres where the 'jump rings' will need to go
  • Colour using alcohol inks
  • Shrink each of the flowers and mould the petals upwards to shape while still warm (but not hot!)
  • Glue flowers together and add pearls in the middle as shown, using glossy accents.
  • Attach chain, some glass beads and the earring and clasp findings and "ta-dahhh"
I'll be running a workshop on shrink plastic jewellery after Easter, contact me if you are interested.


  1. These are too cute!!! My daughter would love these! I'll have to dig out the shrink plastic and see what I can come up with!

  2. Thanks for your comment Anna. Hope you and your daughter have fun! Suz x
